"Discover Your Anthem"
November 3–5, University of Maryland–Baltimore County

Baltimore is a major city in Maryland with a long history as an important seaport. Fort McHenry, birthplace of the U.S. national anthem, sits at the mouth of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Today, this harbor area offers shops, upscale crab shacks, and attractions like the Civil War-era warship the USS Constellation and the National Aquarium, showcasing thousands of marine creatures. It is home to the open-air walkways and shops of Baltimore’s Harborplace, as well as Camden Yards, home of the Orioles, and M&T Bank Stadium, home of the Ravens.

Educational Session Proposals

The Region VII Conference Planning Team is accepting educational session proposals. Educational sessions not only provide quality content, but also an opportunity to find your voice as a student or professional and maximize your potential to become your best self.

This year, there are exciting additions to the educational content, which includes the return of a session block featuring student presenters and a new Graduate Case Study Competition with an opportunity for senior professional staff to serve as judges for the case presentations. Students are encouraged to submit proposals and share their expertise with the regional membership.

A proposal for both the annual conference and the Region VII conference may be submitted simultaneously. The Region VII conference education session proposal deadline is Sept. 8.
